The department seeks a distinguished senior faculty scientist for an open position as Director of the Division of Biostatistics.

The graduate program in biostatistics is expanding, with current enrollment of 31 PhD and 6 MS students. Teaching responsibilities also include participation in Penn’s Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CCEB) academic programs and other medical school educational programs.
